York City's fans and first-team football make Sam Sanders turn down Nottingham Forest contract
Defender Sam Sanders has rejected a new Nottingham Forest contract to make his loan move to York City permanent.
The 20-year-old was part of the team which won promotion to the Conference via the play-offs last season, and it made enough of an impression for him to sign a two-year contract.
“The fans here are unbelievable, you see the attendance week in, week out and in the play-offs you are breaking records – they get behind you every step of the way," said Sanders.
Forest also won promotion last summer, to the Premier League.
